ImRheo provides a new technique to measure the mechanical properties of soft materials, based on image processing and artificial intelligence.
ImRheo’s goal is to develop a cheaper and simpler rheometer, which can be used for applications in food (foams, emulsions, colloids, etc.), cosmetics (gels, creams, foams, etc.), constructions engineering (concrete), petroleum (waxy oil), coating (paints), bioengineering (bioprinters, saliva testing), etc.
The team of physicists and computer scientists uses the discoveries of the past eight years on the flow of rheological materials, and will design software that uses a physics-informed Machine Learning algorithm to measure the rheological properties of liquids (elasticity, plasticity, and viscosity) only with imaging. The goals for this project have been set together with companies active in these application areas.

Madglove delivers an accessible home-based rehabilitation solution to counteract the effects of hand spasticity around the world. Spasticity, one of the most common effects of stroke makes it very difficult for individuals to use their hands. Madglove designed a smart, easy to use glove to help them overcome it. By improving their handfunction, they increase […]
Flowsure develops an automated urine production monitor that improves patient safety while reducing nursing workload. Patients are monitored by checking vital parameters including the continuous urine output. Today’s manual registration of urine output is too labor intensive, resulting in critical patient information not being available to ensure their safety. Flowsure automates urine output registration by […]
Wij zijn PULSE Racing, een van de dreamteams van de VU, en zetten ons in om functionele elektrostimulatie (FES) voor mensen met een dwarslaesie verder door te ontwikkelen. Met behulp van FES kunnen ook deze patiënten hun beenspieren blijven gebruiken. En dat biedt voordelen voor zowel hun mentale- als fysieke gezondheid.
